The latest version replaces the raw metadata with a link to the item detail. References and icons are now clearly grouped and a contribution system is in place if you've got the drive to create an icon we don't have yet.

More to come.

Looks nice! (But I haven't tried it: I'm using Opera.)

BTW, you may want to look at Tiger. It has a mechanism that lets you easily hook into a page to enhance it. The plus of Tiger is that it's a conventional multi-browser extension so it's easy to install.

On the other hand, I now see that you're doing cross-host connections there (to query.yahooapis.com and etree.org), so it won't be possible to merge this code into Tiger (because, ironically, it won't work in Firefox) ; by switching to JSONP this can be solved.

JSONP is not applicable to this approach. I took plenty of time testing it's feasibility. This is a Grease Monkey script and if you don't use a browser which Grease Monkey supports I can't imagine you as the power user I expect to use this new resource.
